Evening of the Arts

Evening of the Arts at Plew Elementary in Niceville, FL is next week Thursday, April 26.  Mrs. Seebaldt's class has been busy preparing.  Take a look at what the kids have done!  Keep scrolling down.

These dragonfly ornaments / suncatchers are my own unique design which I sell for $12 each. The kids all helped to make 38 of these that will be available for only $5 each in the Gallery Store in a temporary building at EOA. These are perfect Mother's Day gifts (Mother's Day is May 13).

The kids hammered the wings and tails of the dragonflies on an anvil (with safety glasses) and learned a little about the properties of copper at the same time. About 1/2 of the dragonflies made are ornaments/suncatchers and the remaining have been made into pendant necklaces or hairpins. Check out the Gallery Store early for the best selection.

Handmade dragonfly ornament/suncatcher in orange and blue.  There are some in garnet and gold too.

Some of the colors available. The wings can be bent into a "V" shape if desired
Some of the dragonflies the kids made have been turned into hairpins or necklaces
The kids made watercolor pencil art to use as display cards for the dragonflies.  Cut off the white part on top and you have a beautiful little artwork--two art pieces in one purchase! Look for a tri-fold display board in the Gallery Store.
Mr and Mrs Hendricks designed this incredible magnet board that will be available to bid on in the Live Auction in the cafeteria at EOA. The kids helped paint the frame and made all the alphabet magnets. The frame is affixed to a piece of metal which is covered with polka dot print fabric.

And don't forget that many smaller items donated by the community will be available at the Silent Auction in the Plew Media Center.  I'll have these too jewelry sets available to bid on there:

Freshwater pearl, Swarovski crystals and gold filled bracelet and earring set
